Couldn't wait to come back after our hotel visit, so visited for lunch with some friends. What a difference to our last stay.
No spirit, no inspiration, no friendly approach...

Gone way down hill.
One for your 'managers', short blonde is something I can only call a mistake and should never be running a business. I won't go into much detail but you should keep a close eye on her.
Staff all round seems distracted, discussing private matters in front of guests with chefs. Not professional at all.

Sadly we will not be returning, shame as we were loyal customers.

Kitchen and waiting staff discussing their business around the tables and at the back of the restaurant with swearing really let this lovely little bit ofEnglish history down. Wonderfully simple decor, simple but well cooked food all out the window by the foley of the servers.

The staff were excellent, my daughter and partner were involved in traffic and although they were late by nearly an hour there was not a problem at all. The staff were amazing and left us to enjoy our drinks until the rest of our party arrived, at which point our orders were taken promptly and the delicious food arrived soon after! All dietary requirements were carefully catered for to ensure everyone could enjoy the meal equally which was greatly appreciated! We can't wait to go back! Highly recommend!

A last minute booking was made and we are thankful it had space. Starters of blue cheese souffle, which were divine, were followed by two beef roasts. Everything about the roast was spot on other than the strange, cake like Yorkshire Puddings. I think this was the first time I had left them on the plate.

Delicious food and great service.
